Abstract:

Since the early 1990s, the Armys overseas presence has been dramatically reduced and its reliance on the Defense - Transportation System DTS to effectively and efficiently project power has correspondingly increased. As a result, a significant portion of the Army and the overall Department of Defense DOD budgets continues to be allocated to the military and commercial components of the DTS. However, neither the Army nor its partners in the joint transportation community are currently able to provide DODs strategic leaders with the detailed benefitcost data required to make the types of investment decisions common in the corporate world. This study presents three actions that would lead to the development and effective employment of a more comprehensive, holistic, and integrated set of cost-based deployment modeling tools--tools that could guide programmatic transportation decisions well into the 21st Century.
